In 2009 the RAC were called out to almost 178,000 incidents, citing a flat battery as the number one reason for being called out. If all those cars calling out the RAC for a flat battery had invested in the Startmonkey200, there would have been no need for the RAC!
Startmonkey200 suits all batteries with up to a 650CCA (Cold Cranking Amps - usually displayed on the top of your cars battery) and can has the capacity to restart this type of 12 Volt car battery between 15 and 20 times. If your battery exceeds the 650 CCA, you will need the Startmonkey400 which is available here.
Startmonkey200 has 2 output channels;
1) A 12 volt, 200Amp car jump start,
2) A 12 volt, 100 watt max, 8Amp DC output for changing your portable gadgets.
How it works
After you have checked your battery has the correct CCA rating and attach the jump leads to your car battery following the instructions as you go, and Startmonkey200 will automatically start delivering 200 amps of continuous power. Leave Startmonkey200 for 8-10 seconds, then turn your ignition and the car will start.
If your engine fails to start, leave Startmonkey200 connected for 10-15 minutes and try again. Once the cars starts, Startmonkey200 will switch itself off.
It takes approximately 8 hours to charge a Startmonkey200 from empty via the in-car charger and you can charge quicker from the mains with an additional charger (not included). Once activated the 4-segment LED display will light up green to confirm that the Startmonkey is charging the battery. It is recommended that the Startmonkey200 is recharged when it falls to around 50% charge.
Startmonkey200 is ideal for storing in the car for emergencies as it has low static wastage meaning that it will retain up to 75% of it's original charge when unused for a year. Startmonkey200 will charge your battery 500 times so if your battery needs to be charged that often, it's probably time for a new car.

Ensure the startmonkey200 is placed on a stable, secure location i.e. outside edge wing of car, so that is cannot fall into the engine bay.
Do not leave startmonkey200 in engine bay once the car has started.
Do not connect startmonkey200 to a 5volt or 24volt battery as this will damage the startmonkey200.

If startmonkey200 is connected to a 6v or 24v battery, it will not activate. Startmonkey200 interrogates the battery it is connected to and confirms that the range is between 8 - 14v, before automatically switching on.
